Essence You Rock! Lipstain in Your Pink is On Fire

Katkoc asked me to do a post about Essence Lipstain from the new You Rock! Trend Edition. Well, Katkoc, thank you for reminding me! I have a lot of products to write about and this one should have a priority, since it's a limited edition item.

Essence released two shades of lipstains. The lighter pink is called 01 Let Me in Rose and the one I bought is darker and cooler. This one is 02 Your Pink is On Fire.

I tried the lipstain on the back of my hand and it basically feels like drawing with a marker. Once the color dries, it stays there and fades gradually. It doesn't smear or smudge, but it does slowly fade off.

I like the control you have when you use this marker. You can line your lips the way you like it and then just fill them in. Elementary school all over again. ;) One thing I have to mention is - your lips must be super soft when you use this. I usually apply lip balm under my lipstick, but in this case, your lips need to be bare. If your lips are dry, it's gonna show. And it doesn't look pretty (as you can see on my photo below). I apologise in my lips behalf, but this wouldn't be a fair review if I didn't show you the product in action.

Price: €1.99 for 0.06 fl. oz/1.8 mL

This product if a lot of fun and it's cheap. If you're tempted to try it, I say you get it.

What do you think - would you try this product?

Thanks for looking!


  1. Astor released a similar product but again Essence beats any competitor with their bargain prices.

  2. I want to try it!! I think all lipstains want super soft lips.

  3. Nice one lovely color shame we don't get essence over here.

  4. I like the looks of this one. Looks like it wouldn't dry out so easy.

  5. Thank your for the swatch! This limited edtion haven't arrived to my contry yet.
    I think I would buy the same lipstain because the color is awesome.

  6. I would get this if lipstains worked on me! I've tried all types of stains and they all stain my bottom lip but it disappears on my top as soon as I apply it. :-(

  7. Ooo, to pa je bilo hitro!
    Hvala <3

  8. Bought the other one! Because I was so curious about the Lipfinity Lasting Lip Tint from Maxfactor, but that one was so expensive! Love it, and love that it's so affortable :)

  9. This lip stain looks quite pigmented and the colour is very pretty!

  10. i just got it, but the other color and i looove it :) i'm gonna go back and get this color as well :D

  11. Love the color on you! The problem with lipstains is that my lips feel so darn dry. I also lick my lips so I will do it more when using these.
